The most arthritis friendly nail art design is the one I don’t even paint on my nails, right?
There is a relatively new technique called “drip marbling” which is very similar to acrylic paint marbling.
I create a design on a flat plastic surface. Once it dries, I cut it into smaller pieces and apply them to my nails as decals. It a very simple nail art technique but yields a beautiful result. I showcase water decals and no-water marbles on my blog all the time so I bit the time bullet and tried out this new to me style.

This is exactly what I was going for: an irregular marble without any muddiness. It kind of reminds me of lava…
I love the end result but these decals are thick which is to be expected when using so much polish.
